The fifth annual Berkeley Restaurant Week is ready to roll, from Thursday, Jan. 19 through Sunday Jan. 29, with special-value lunch and dinner menus at many Berkeley restaurants citywide.

Visitors and Bay Area locals will have a 10-day run to try a new restaurant or revisit a favorite from a line-up of more than 25 restaurants. And the incentive is clear: Berkeley Restaurant Week will feature prix-fixe lunch menus for $20, and dinners for $25 or $35.  (Check out a list of participating restaurants, menus and reservations at BerkeleyRestaurantWeek.com.)

This year’s Berkeley Restaurant Week includes several new restaurants to Berkeley, including La Marcha, Lucia’s Pizzeria, B&B Kitchen & Bar, and Saha.

Presented by Visit Berkeley, Berkeley Restaurant Week spans a world of flavors, from Japan, Italy, Mexico, France, Yemen, Germany, India, Africa and the Mediterranean, as well as locally sourced, seasonal American cuisine.
